Review

A skillful mashup of science fiction and eclectic mythology, enlivened by vivid sensory detail and moments of emotional and philosophical depth. A nonstop time-travel romp. --Kirkus Reviews"

History and mythology fans will love this fast-moving ride through time, where mythological maps take Nix and the crew to real places with items and creatures true to the map s design This must-have fantasy adventure will appeal to fans of Rick Riordan s Kane Chronicles. --School Library Journal (starred review)"

With time travel, fantasy, Hawaiian history, mythology, cute animals, and a feisty femaleprotagonist, romance and fantasy readers will find much to enjoy. --Booklist"

[A] time-travel adventure Heilig s writing is richly immersive, and a mature exploration of complicated love, both familial and romantic, underlies the story. A riveting and far-reaching fantasy that crosses seamlessly across the centuries, posing questions about fate, loyalty, and belonging. --Publishers Weekly"

This thrilling swashbuckler-steeped in history, myth, and legend-finds a solid anchor in its colorful characters. Fascinating, thought-provoking and wonderfully imagined, The Girl From Everywhere will spark the adventurer inside every reader. --Shelf Awareness"

The world Heilig has built is a creative blend of actual history and fantasy elements grounded in ancient and modern myths. Her novel is simultaneously an adventure story, a love triangle, and a meditation on big topics like the idea of home and the tension between fate and free will. --BookPage"

Heilig presents a dizzying array of intermeshed events, dates, and maps. The plot is rooted in actual Hawaiian history, and redolent with realistic details and Hawaiian folklore. The reader may ultimately be surprised at how smoothly the fantastical elements here mesh with the real. --Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"

A truly exciting book, brimming with adventure, history, and sinuous potential. The Girl from Everywhere is a bewilderingly good book. Heidi Heilig is one to watch. --Christian Science Monitor"

One of my absolute favourite reads of 2016, Heidi Heilig s debut captured me completely from the first page. A lushly written time-traveling adventure with an imaginative magical twist, real heart and real heartbreak, and a major dash of swoon. --Alwyn Hamilton, author of Rebel of the Sands"

This debut catapults delightfully from one map to the next, offering a fresh and captivating approach to time travel. --NPR Books"

Product Description

It was the kind of August day that hinted at monsoons, and the year was 1774, though not for very much longer.

Sixteen-year-old Nix Song is a time-traveller. She, her father and their crew of time refugees travel the world aboard The Temptation, a glorious pirate ship stuffed with treasures both typical and mythical. Old maps allow Nix and her father to navigate not just to distant lands, but distant times - although a map will only take you somewhere once. And Nix's father is only interested in one time, and one place: Honolulu 1868. A time before Nix was born, and her mother was alive. Something that puts Nix's existence rather dangerously in question . . .

Nix has grown used to her father's obsession, but only because she's convinced it can't work. But then a map falls into her father's lap that changes everything. And when Nix refuses to help, her father threatens to maroon Kashmir, her only friend (and perhaps, only love) in a time where Nix will never be able to find him. And if Nix has learned one thing, it's that losing the person you love is a torment that no one can withstand. Nix must work out what she wants, who she is, and where she really belongs before time runs out on her forever.
